The CIM Adventure Team, founded in 2016, is a team of exceptional individuals from the Type 1 diabetes community who come together to redefine life with Type 1 diabetes, achieve personal goals, and raise money for CIM to help more people realize life without limits.
Each year, people from around the world apply to be a member of CIM’s Adventure Team. Applications are accepted in early January. A selection committee reviews each and every application and makes recommendations to help build a diverse team, announced in early February each year. We are looking for individuals with varying backgrounds both in terms of diabetes and adventure experience. Although the trek is physically demanding, you do not need to be a seasoned backpacker to join us – You just need to be willing to put in the work and gain the fitness to make your trip a success. The application involves answering a few questions about yourself, your diabetes, and why you think you’d be a good fit for the team. In August 2019, the CIM Adventure Team will set out to complete the Chilkoot Trail, crossing the international boundary between the United States and Canada.
We look forward to your application!
